"I remember the old days, loading my Linux boxen from 35 floppies. How the times have changed! Now, I can just create a quick config file with vi, with easily readable (anyone else remember PERL? augh!) sentences, and have a webserver and NFS share set up. Just like that. Awesome! I tried this when we went down to Haiti to help set up emergency infrastructure after the hurricane, and NixOps worked like a champ to let us quickly deploy IC centers."
"NixOps is a simple and stripped-down tool for getting NixOS machines to work in a network or cloud. You enter a declarative statement and NixOps will perform the necessary steps to carry out that action. For a beginner like me, NixOps is a bit too stripped down, and a bit daunting. I need a video tutorial or a class to help me get the most of it."
